Stage Electrics Enhance Birmingham University's Drama Department's Performance



An investment in a pair of state-of-the-art 7,000 lumen Panasonic projectors has enhanced the University of Birmingham’s drama student’s exceptional adaptation of the book ‘Looking Backward’ written by Edward Bellamy in 1888. 

With the requirement for a projector that could achieve a high level of output to cut through stage lighting plus project onto two different surfaces during performance, the University of Birmingham went to industry leaders Stage Electrics for guidance.

Stage Electrics’ Paul Lucas liaised with the Universities Drama Department to interpret their requirements. Paul commented “It became apparent that the department wanted to acquire professional technical equipment that exposes students to the leading brands and technology. They needed projectors that could be used for full performances, delivering a high-quality presentation whilst still being portable enough to move between their various spaces and studios; I knew Panasonic’s PT-DW750 was exactly what the University needed”.

The PT-DW750 has an operating noise of just 30 dB which makes it perfect for noise-critical situations, along with outstanding image projection quality, a single chip DLP and 7,000 lm, Stage Electrics knew that this projector would be the perfect fit – a choice Phil Speck, a technical tutor and lighting designer of the University of Birmingham’s Drama Department, certainly agreed with.

“As a department, we could not be more pleased with the PT-DW750’s and the variety afforded by the options of control and input” reported Phil “Stage Electrics were great in listening to all the requirements we had and provided us with a range of options at very competitive prices. They took the time to listen to any queries, ensuring that the purchase was exactly what was needed”.
